TRS talks of civil war over Telangana statehood

TRS ideologue K Jayashankar said war-like situation would be inevitable if the Srikrishna committee fails to give a report in line with the aspirations of Telangana people.

Addressing the anniversary celebrations of the party here, he said the panel formed by the central government to look into the issue was the last hope for people demanding a separate state of Telangana.

“If Telangana is not formed even after the Srikrishna panel submits its report, struggle will be the only option before the people. We can’t say what will be the shape of this movement,” said the former vice chancellor of Kakatiya University.

“People will decide the nature of the movement. They have no options as despite an announcement by the central government in parliament their dream of a separate state has not been fulfilled,” he said.

The five-member panel formed by the Centre in February is currently  holding consultations with all stake holders. The panel headed by former Supreme Court Justice  B N Srikrishna has been given time till Dec 31 to submit its report.
